To access the UAB Electronic Directory, go to http://www.uab.edu/phonebook.

In the row of buttons towards the top of page, locate and click the green button labeled Authenticate

On the page that appears, enter your Blazer ID and Password.

Note:If you do not have a BlazerID or have forgotten your Blazer ID and/or password, you must complete the BlazerID password reset form at http://www.uab.edu/blazerid or contact AskIT at 996-5555.

 

Click the "Login!" button

You will be directed to the UAB Electronic Phonebook page. Note the three search parameters available to you. By default, the directory searches "all listings" that "match" the name you type in.

 

Type the name of your entity in the textbox.

Click the "Go!" button. Your search may return several entities. Find the correct one and click on its name to continue to its directory page. The entity's page should appear similar to the example below. 

 

Depending on your permissions, you may or may not see all of the red buttons above. However, if you do not see the red Bluepages button, please consider the following: 

  • Make sure you authenticated (signed in with BlazerID and password). If you haven't, you should see the green Authenticate button on the page. Click on that to sign in.
  • Make sure you are viewing an entity, not an individual. Sometimes, there are several entities and individuals with related names. Conduct a new search by clicking on the green New Search button. Type in a more general name (for example, "Campus Directory" instead of "UAB Campus Directory"). The search should return more listings. Look under the Entity section of the return list for the correct listing, and click its name.
  • If you are still having trouble, you may not have permission to add, edit or delete bluepage listings.

Click on the Add Entity button and the following screen will return. Complete all of the applicable information in the form. Choose the best fit from the list of values associated with the Entity Type.

  • Remember once you click on the ADD button the entity is created and can not be deleted without the assistance of the programmers. Therefore, please verify all information and confirm where the entity should report BEFORE clicking the ADD button.


If no other changes are needed, then you should select the "END SESSION"  button at the top of the screen to logout of the record.
